Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Lionhawk on 03-11-2014

Ancient traditions dictate this Belgian style Dubbel was brewed with a long kettle boil, pitching a blend of yeast strains and bottle conditioning encouraged with Belgian Candi Sugar. Dan’s insistence on old world methodology creates the complexity of the Strong Ale you hold 18°P. Sipping will reveal a cordial of caramel and spiced fruit notes. This makes it perfect to lie down in your cellar or enjoy by the fire tonight.

Itching for a nice Belgian style beer, thanks to rudzud for giving me this.

Pours a ridiculous head, like way overcarbonated beer probably a bit sweet side due to the style and continued fermenting in the bottle a bit more than it should have, large 3 finger head forces me to stop pouring, fluffy fizzy bubbly head leaves wisps of spotty lacing, dark mahogany but clear colored beer.

Nose brings sweet brown sugar, candy syrup like notes, toffee and biscuit notes, faint candi sugar and faint phenols with a whisp of booze, a touch of a yeasty note, mild fruity esters as well. That's about it, fairly light for what I was expecting.

Taste starts a little yeasty, but that quickly fades to the sweet candy, Belgian candi sugar, with caramelized brown sugar, a condensed maple syrup and almost creme brulee like flavor of sweet caramelized candy sugars. A mild booze warmth kicks in, with light phenols and a little tingle, as well as some light fruity esters, a touch of fig and spiced date like flavor, a little effervescence as well. Lots of candied date and bananas foster like notes finishes a little sweet and mild sticky but not much, with more booze warmth lingering, a little bitterness, lots more candy syrup, caramel, toffee, etc, lingering.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, a touch syrupy, some warming tingly booze more than it should for less than 8%, and over carbonated.

Overall not bad, wish the phenols and esters were a bit more for how boozy it seems, nice fruits though but wish they were also a bit more, lots of nice candy flavors without being to sweet or syrupy, so still quite enjoyable.
